Great trails with small waterfalls. Cages are small, but the animals are well treated. We take our grand kids a few times a year.

It's a cute little zoo that has all your basic zoo animals. But that's about it. The zoo was nice to see but it didn't take long to see all of it.

If you want to spend a morning, afternoon or even a full day, you can go there and see the animals. The climate is nice, so you can enjoy your time there.
